      Description

      I noticed that an anonymous user (a not logged in user) cannot perform any of the below tasks, despite having permissions assigned to do so.  Instead they get a message saying they must login as well as a login prompt (see attached).

      • Creating/editing (administrating) repositories
      • Creating/deleting privileges
      • Creating/deleting roles
      • Creating users (deleting is greyed out and I get an error, which I shall eval vs master)
      • Clearing Crowd cache
      • Verify LDAP user mapping
      • Adding/removing/changing realm order
      • Adding an SSL certificate
      • Enabling User Tokens
      • Resetting log levels
      • Deleting a logger (adding/updating one is weirdly fine)
      • Creating a log mark (NOTE: Items below here were added after Stuart's analysis)
      • Generate a support zip
      • Creating/editing/deleting a capability
      • Editing HTTP
      • Enabling read only mode
      • Creating/editing/deleting a task

      Interestingly if you log in as the anonymous user (possible since the anonymous user is a user like any other) these do work.  However, it's really a hack, because the point of having the anonymous user is to not have an account and able to do any of the functions assigned.
